Nevada has recently been buzzing with political activity because of its recent caucuses and swing state status. I recently met Pamela Zamora, a senior at Las Vegas High School, and Arturo Gonzalez, a second year student at the College of Southern Nevada, to photograph them as they volunteered to register voters for Mi Familia Vota, on the campus of UNLV. Mi Familia Vota is the organization behind a huge effort to get Latinos to become citizens and register to vote in time for the November election.
Here are some recent photos of Olympic high jumper Vashti Cunningham for Sports Illustrated. At just 18, the recent high school graduate is poised to become one of the world's best high jumpers. Her mother, Felicity de Jager, is a former professional ballerina and her father is former NFL quarterback Randall Cunningham. Growing up in Pennsylvania I can remember playing football as a kid and how everyone always wanted to be the Philadelphia Eagle's Randall Cunningham.
